Synopsis

May 1940. In a village called Les Milles located in South France, the French army commandeers an old factory to maintain German, French, Austrian, Czech and stateless civilians most of which are either Jews, communists or opponents to Nazism. Many fled Germany thinking they could find protection in France. Major Perrochon, director of the camp, has orders to hand the prisoners over to the Nazis but disobeys his superiors and tries to transport about 800 prisoners to Casablanca, Morocco.
